In addition, orthopaedic surgeon Christopher Bayne, a specialist in hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder microsurgery, appears on the cover. Bayne and adolescent medicine physician Laura Kester also were selected to offer perspectives on patient care and trends in their fields. 

UC Davis Health’s presence on the list represents an increase from the previous year, when 219 physicians were named “Top Docs.” 

“We are honored that so many of our physicians are respected by their peers,” said David A. Lubarsky, vice chancellor of Human Health Sciences and CEO of UC Davis Health. “Our growing presence on this list reinforces our reputation as a leader in both primary and specialty care. Our medical team is also the reason for our health system’s regional — and national — reputation as a leader in providing world-class patient care.”

"Top Docs" are selected through a peer-review survey led by Professional Research Services Company of Troy, Mich. To learn more about the selection process, go to prscom.com.
